ELECTRONICS ENGINEER


,. 1 The Story of
DICK lONGfELLOW
S MINNESOTA '37


NTO small factor in Dick Longfellow's deci-
sion to come with General Electric was
the knowledge that at G.E. he could con-
tinue his studies in electronics engineering.
Dick had grown up with electronics. Hie
had operated his own amateur radio station
when hle was 14, a-nd at Minni.esota he had
specidaized in com-munications.
With this background of intensive study,
he was well-prepared to take advantage of
the courses available to him at General Elec-
tric. His outstanding work'during two years
of high-frequency studies earned him elec-
tronics assignments first, in the Research
Laboratory, and later, in 1940, with the
Transmitter Division.
Since then Dick Longfellow has been sihap-
ing for himself the kind of a career fhe began
planning \ong ago. He has worked in tele-
vision, has designed ultra high frequency
radio tubes, .has contributed -to the develop-
ment of radar. Today, after-ten years with
G.E., he is Chief Engineer of the company's
Electronics Specialty Division.
Next to schools and the U.S. Government, General 'Elec-
tric employs more college engineering graduates than any
other organization.


An engineer for his University broadcasting
station, Dick handled controls during foot--
ball broadcasts.

-Among his present assignments is included.
work on radio sonde equipment, used to
determine weather data.

Lurking Danger

In a recent report, the Citizens' Com-
mittee on Education made several recom-
mendations of a startling nature.
Of greatest interest to Florida men was
the recommendation ti st both the Uni-
versity of Florida and 1 lorida State. Col-
lege for Women be made co-educational.
This recommendation, like others made
by the committee shoui.l bear a lot of
weight with the legislature when it con-
venes in April.
Another startling recon nendation, but
not of such a pleasant nmt .re as the first,
is that recommending- tlie establishment
of a third state University in South Flor-
ida, the setting up of a chancellorship
system providing for one chancellor to be
over the three University presidents, and
the tagging of the three Universities as
the University of Florida in Gainesville,
the University of Florida in Tallahassee,
and the University of Florida in South
Florida.
This proposal is most interesting if only
in considering the additional cost to the
state which would be involved by the set-
ting up of a new University and a chan-
cellorship system. It is difficult to un-
derstand how the State of Florida could
adequately support these new innovations
along with the present Universities when,
at present, the needs for housing, class-
room space, and decent salaries for facul-
ty have not come even close to being sat-
isfied by the state.
.Gazing into the future it is not hard to
gauge the trend which will be established
by the creation of three Universities of
Florida. The Law School and Education
School on this campus, long considered
"choice plums" by Tallahassee residents,
could well be transferred to the Univer-
sity of Florida in Tallahassee.
It is not too far fetched to imagine that
other schools of our present University
would be transferred to the newly estab-
lished University of Florida in South Flor-
ida in order to aid in "building up" 'that
University when and if it is created.
This process would soon, if .successful-
ly carried .out, leave the present Univer-
sity of Florida as an agricultural and en-
gineering school.
Student sentiment on this proposal as
well as the pressing problem of housing,
permanent construction and faculty pay
must become crystallized if we are to
avoid the events which may be destined
to bring about the disintegration of our
University from its present solidified sta-
tus, and which may well lead to the dis-
persal of its facilities to other institutions.
The Committee of Sixty-Seven, created
by the Student Government under Presi-
dent of the Student Body Harry Parham
and headed by General Chairmen John
Crews and Jack Lucas, is a marvelous or-
gan for the conveying of their sentiments
by students here to their legislators in
their home counties.
Each of Florida's 67 counties will have
a student chairman who will organize stu-
dents from his county to make known to
the "folks back home" and to their legis-
lators, the needs of the University and the
sentiments of its students.
This project can only be successful if
'students on this campus realize the out-
look for the future and decide to do some-
thive about it.


INVEST C6 r lO


BY LES GLEICHENHAUS
PSY 201 HELPS SOME: Once, at least, in many
a youngster's growing years, he has the impulse
--and sometimes the courage-to run away from
home. He feels abused, misunderstood, unloved or
resents some great injustice heaped upon him by
an adult and dictatorial world.
It is here that Uncle Remus, Joel Chandler's
celebrated tale teller, begins, to dominate
the plot, pointing a moral with his stories to
lift the downcast hearts of a little boy and a
little girl and their little negro friend. The
boy feels neglected and outside the affection of
his parents. They themselves are ati odds when
the husband, an Atlanta newspaper editor, po-
litically affronts certain powerful interests, and
the pair's social life suffers in consequence.
The boy is left with his mother at the grand-
mother's plantation, while the father returns to
the city to fight for his professional life. The lad
is bewildered by all this emotional disturbance.
He starts to run away. Then Uncle Remus comes
in with those ever-lovin' fables that are sure a
wonderful sight to see. Everybody will go for this
pic that started yesterday and will run through
Monday. Let's all zipedeedooda right on down to
the Florida and see the "Song of the South."
FIRST NIGHT AND PASSING OUT: Had
two on the aisle Monday evening for the Ly-
ceum Council's presentation of Clarence Day's
"Life With Father" or "Beat Me, Daddy, With a
Nasty Ole Damn."
Finally entrenched in those comfy auditorium
seats, I noticed the huge audience and started
to gather impressions of a Gator First Night
which, though no fault of the Lyceumi Council,
are ever so rare. The female gender in the au-
dience were looking mighty sharp, all bedecked
in heaps of femme finery that is seen ever so
rarely in this land of "men, men, and not a
woman to slink."
The undergrads were looking mighty sharp with
the one-button rolls, fly-front topcoats and tweeds.
It just goes to show you that when something de-
cent in the way of entertainment is being pre-
sented the Gators will turn out enmasse and in
class.
"Genial" Richardson, prez of the local Lyceum,
could be seen skulking amidst the first-night au-
dience decked out in white muffler and overcoat
pulled over his ears, welcoming everybody amidst
the barrage of paper B-29's.
After enjoying this excellent show I went
backstage to-have a few choice words with "Fa-
ther" Brandon Peters. With a cheery "Oh,,
God," he motioned to the addled back sofa,
circa 1891, to wit I crumpled, trying to look
small and unimportant. The query is printed
in its entirety:
"Do you enjoy playing the role of father week
in and week out?"
"Damn."
"What do you think of Gainesville?"
"Damn."
"What do you think .?"
"Damn."
As I dashed off the antiquated divan I ran-
intn Whitney and Harlan, the juvenlte leads who
were smoking Pall Malls in the wings.

Three Worthy Projects

At least three recently-anniounced campus pbirojee-t.
are worthy of student cooperation and support in thdioe'om
ing weeks, if none others.
First, -the World Student Service Fund Drived'.Tlho.
WSSF is an organization designed to bring iiid i4,d -,liief
to students all over the world who, through p,,olerty ,ir thl.
ravages of war, are now destitute and without the funds
or other necessities for continuing their education.. ,If ev-
ery man on the campus donates at least a dime, it will. be
possible for the University to meet its quota of $ if'.
Another worth-while enterprise is the free X-ray cam-.
paign to be-conducted within the next two weeks. It is
hoped that every student will avail himself of .th~iXi-ray
machine in order to guard against the ever-pri ."-'nt dan-
ger of tuberc ilosis. It's not even necessary to :remove
your shirt--only your presence is needed. : 7 .. '
Last, but far from least in importance, are the.plaibs
of the student government for the productiono-f a' student
musical extravaganza, at present under the dir,. 'ti.-rrof
Bill Byrd, Secretary for Social Affairs in the. cabinet'of
Student Body President Harry Parham. To be patterned
a-long the lines of Harvard's "Hasty Pudding Show" and
Pennsylvania's "Mask and Wig Show," the Florida show,
which will be an annual event, should prove to.be one of
the finest of its type in the nation.
LAke the WSSF and X-ray campaigns, the musical
show will only succeed with student cooperation. All stu-
dents having any talent should attend the meeting sched-
uled by Byrd for next Thursday night in the Florida Union.

Thanks Students
For Union Care
Mr. Morty Freedman
Editor, Florida Alligator
Campus
Dear Editor:
We, as Staff Assistants o tih
Florida Union, would personally
like to thank the students who
frequent the Bryan Lounge for the
noticeable change which has taken
place there. We have noticed stu-
dents straightening the rugs and
picking up stray newspapers
from tlh floor and generally help-
ing- to keep the Lounge clean. This
may seem a trivial matter to some
-but when applied on a 15-hour
per day basis it -means a great
improvement.
Florida Men have always been
proud of the.non-restricted use of
our Lounge, a,.privilege denied,
students of one of. our other state
institutions, so again many thanks
for helping us ,to keep it that
way.
Respectfully Yours,
"Stormy" Forth

THE FLORIDA ALLIGATOR



Expanded Facilities


The Infirmary of the Un-
iversity, .in urgent need of'
e:..-,,i-i,,ii due to greatly in-1
c r e-a s e d enrollment, will
soon have a new addition.
:The third floor of the In-
firmary,, which should be
completed by the second
semester of this year, will
make possible the addition
of:fifteen to twenty beds,-
making a total of between forty-
five and fifty beds.
M triall shortages- have been re-
-: ..:. i r- for the delay in this
expansion, but its completion will
still leave infirmary facilities in-
sufficient to accommodate the pre-
senit -number of students enrolled
in the University.
"Easy Winter"
Dr.'E. R. Rose, who is'the phy-
sician in charge of the infirmary,
states that, because of the mild
weather which has prevailed this
winter facilities have thus far
been sufficient; but a bad winter
would have presented a serious
problem which the Infirmary
would have been unable to ade-
quately meet, even -if the present
addition had been completed.
Plans Undecided
$325,000 has .-rn appropriated
,to expand the Infirmary-prob-
ably an addition, to the present
building and the construction of
a nurses' home-but plans as to
when construction will begin are
still undecided upon. Meanwhile,
the Infirmary is insufficient to
insure adequate protection ,to the
increased student body.
Constructed In 1931
-The Infirmary was constructed
in 1931 to meet the needs .of 3500
students, and no serious expansion
or improvement in facilities has
occurred since ,that date. With the
University enrollment expected to
reach 7500 this February, the In-
firmary will be expected to meet
the needs of over twice as many
students as it was origh. lly ex-
pected to accofnodate.
Staff Additions
The staff of the Infirma-y has
been recently improved. The Un-
iversity secured the services of Dr.
E. R. Rose in September of 1945.
Dr. Rose is a graduate of Indiana
University School of Medicine and
had been director of the Student
Health Service at Ohio University.
The Staff now includes three full
time physicians, one part time phy-
sician, eleven registered nurses, one
laboratory technician, one part
time registered X-ray technician
who is a student, one secretary,
one part time clerk, three order-
lies, a maid, a cook and an assist-
ant cook, and three student as-
sistants.
"Should Increase Staff"
Dr. Rose states that the In-
firmary staff has adequate per-
sonnel but should be increased
when the need for building ex-
pansion is answered. He hopes
soon to secure the service of a
sanitary inspector, to make pe-
riodical inspections of housing and
eating facilities on and -off ,the al
campus to protect student health., re
"Our-Patient" Clinic in
Present services maintained by m
the Student Health Service in the fa
Infirmary Building include the
"out-patient" clinic which is open
during the day to provide all stu- ,ty
dents in need, of medical care with gi
consultation and treatment by
the physicians and, nurses on the
Health Service Stati. The Infirm-
ary, consisting of thirty crowded
beds, provides the student -in need
of. hospitalization with twenty-
four hours general nursing care
and constant observation of a Un-
iversity physician.
An emergency service is open
to students who become acutely
ill i or are injured at night when
tho clinic is closed.
Emergency Treatment
'The Infirmary is organized ,to
treat acute illnesses, injuries and
emergencies which commonly oc-
cur .while the student is in resi-
dence at the University. It is not
prepared, however, to. provide for
the care of students suffering
from chronic diseases, needing.
surgical treatment or similar
treatment or similar treatment of
a serious nature. Emergency
treatment for chronic diseases and
'serious injuries may be obtained,
but arrangements for continued
treatment are usually 'made out-
side.
,Save Hospital Costs
Dr. Rose urges that all students
avail ,themselves of Infirmary fac
ilities as soon as they are ill and
not wait several hours or days.
That may save them a consider- i


ule hospital bill and will speed an X-ray of their cnests between
